Thanks Rod for sharing this article. I had read about Glenn. What a tragic story. We truly were in different times.

didn't know about him, thanks for posting this


This is truly heartbreaking how the powers that be can erase someone's impact on popular culture whenever it suits them. This was during the Reagan era when greed was good but same sex love was not and homophobia within sports was rampant. Glenn Burke very well could have very well started the conversation but he was a victim of bad timing. Actress Jamie Lee Curtis is currently developing the life of Glenn Burke into a biopic. I cannot wait to see it.


Thanks Man! Much Appreciated.
